Hi. After buying the new iPad Pro 12.9 2017 model I realised it took a ridiculous amount of time to actually turn on and show the apple logo after holding the power button. I looked at unboxings and one persons new iPad Pro turned on after only 3 seconds. In another forum someone said it took 5 seconds for their iPad. For me it takes a solid 6 seconds. How long does your new iPad Pro take to turn on after holding the power button and could my long time be a sign of a hidden problem? Thanks.

I get around 6 seconds too. Pretty sure my previous iPads took longer. It's never been something I worry about as I rarely turn them off anyway.

My iPP 10.5 is 2 seconds slower then my iPhone 6S to show the Apple logo upon startup, however the iPP is 4 seconds faster to get to the passcode screen.
